An Evening with Professor Alice Roberts in conversation with Miranda Krestovnikoff

Published on

Join Professor Alice Roberts in conversation with Miranda Krestovnikoff on Monday 13 May for a unique opportunity to hear these two presenters talk about fame and philanthropy.

The evening with Alice and Miranda is hosted by Quartet Community Foundation who work to inspire philanthropy in the West of England. Following their sell-out Philanthropy Debate at the Arnolfini in 2018, Quartet Community Foundation bring together two broadcasters with strong Bristol connections.

Professor Alice Roberts is well known as an academic, writer and broadcaster but did you know she is passionate about helping people achieve their potential in education and engaging them with science?

Now a familiar face on British TV as a presenter on various science documentary programmes, Alice Roberts was one of the original Coast presenters, along with Miranda Krestovnikoff.

Alice has presented many science, history and archaeology television series, including Coast and Horizon on BBC2, the long-running Digging for Britain series on BBC4 and Britain’s Most Historic Towns on Channel 4 – which will be back for a second series in Summer 2019. She presented the Royal Institution Christmas Lectures in 2018, looking at human identity from a biological perspective.

Alice and Miranda will share tales from the world of TV and radio and will reveal their personal passions as they’re joined on stage by local charitable organisations.

Drinks reception from 6.30pm, followed by a stimulating conversation led by guest interviewer Miranda Krestovnikoff. Miranda is a radio and television presenter specialising in natural history and archaeological programmes including The One Show.

The event is followed by drinks and supper in the historic setting of Armada House, soon to feature in an upcoming BBC drama The Trial of Christine Keeler. Armada House’s historic features include the fireplace situated in the lobby dating from around c.1550 which bears the rose of the House of Tudor and Bristol’s coat of arms.

This event is sponsored by CCLA. Tickets cost £25.
